The New York Times and #1 internationally
bestselling author of the Department Q series is back, with
a terrifyingly relevant stand-alone novel about an America
"The president has gone way too far. . . . These are
practically dictatorial methods we're talking about."
Sixteen years before Democratic Senator Bruce Jansen was
elected president of the United States, a PR stunt brought
together five very different people: fourteen-year-old
Dorothy "Doggie" Rogers, small-town sheriff T. Perkins,
single mother Rosalie Lee, well-known journalist John
Bugatti, and the teenage son of one of Jansen's employees,
Wesley Barefoot. In spite of their differences, the five
remain bonded by their shared experience and devotion to
For Doggie, who worked the campaign trail with Wesley,
Jansen's election is a personal victory: a job in the White
House, proof to her Republican father that she was right to
support Jansen, and the rise of an intelligent, clear-headed
leader with her same ideals. But the triumph is short-lived:
Jansen's pregnant wife is assassinated on election night,
and the alleged mastermind behind the shooting is none other
than Doggie's own father.
When Jansen ascends to the White House, he is a changed man,
determined to end gun violence by any means necessary.
Rights are taken away as quickly as weapons. International
travel becomes impossible. Checkpoints and roadblocks
destroy infrastructure. The media is censored. Militias
declare civil war on the government. The country is in
chaos, and Jansen's former friends each find themselves
fighting a very different battle, for themselves, their
rights, their country . . . and, in Doggie's case, the life
of her father, who just may be innocent.
